The Los Angeles Rams are underdogs at home in Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but they may get Cooper Kupp back in the lineup, which would certainly be a boost to the team’s offense.
While Kupp’s status is still unknown, there are three players in this matchup that I think are worth betting on to find the end zone in Week 5.

Best anytime touchdown scorer picks for Eagles vs. Rams
- Kyren Williams (-105)
- Puka Nacua (+165)
- D’Andre Swift (+105)
Kyren Williams anytime touchdown scorer
Kyren Williams has been a touchdown machine, scoring six times (five on the ground, one through the air) in four games this season.
It’s hard not to consider betting on him, and he’s one player who should have a very similar role whether Kupp plays or not.
The Eagles have only allowed two rushing scores this season, but Williams’ volume around the goal line makes him a must-bet at near even money.
Puka Nacua anytime touchdown scorer
Could Puka Nacua’s role take a hit if Kupp returns?
Maybe, but the rookie receiver is on pace to break just about every record you can imagine this season.
Through four games, he has 52 targets, 39 catches, 501 receiving yards and one score. He found the end zone in overtime to win the Rams their Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts, and I think he could do it again this week.
The Eagles have allowed nine passing scores this season – the third most in the NFL – and the Rams may need to throw the ball a lot if they fall behind. I’ll ride with Nacua to keep his big season going this week.
D’Andre Swift anytime touchdown scorer
If there is an Eagles player to bet on to score this week, I think it is D’Andre Swift.
The running back has found the end zone in two of his last three games, taking the lead role from Kenneth Gainwell in the Philly backfield.
The Rams have allowed six rushing scores this season – the fifth-most in the NFL – so the Eagles should be able to move the ball on the ground. As long as Swift continues to see double-digit carries, he should have a good chance of punching one in during Week 5.
